    $3 Parking in Downtown Garages

    Nov. 25, 2019–Dec. 31, 2020, 3pm–3am
    The City of Boulder is making it easier — and more affordable — to celebrate the holidays downtown with its new "$3 for 3 to 3" parking program. Park in any city parking garage after 3pm and leave before 3am and you'll be charged a flat rate of just $3 for your entire stay. No special tickets or codes are required, and anyone who leaves the garage after 3am will be charged the normal hourly rate ($1.25/hour for the first 4 hours, $2.50/hour after that). As always, parking in city parking garages is free Saturdays, Sundays and city-recognized holidays.
